System alerts currently run no matter what the battery level. When battery level is below say 5% absolutely NO alerts, whether its a plugged in to charge, or unplugged from charger, or low power etc should wake up the display.

Every time the alert wakes the display it causes further power drain that could be completely avoided especially when i know that the battery is low and that i am charging it.

what if the alert is more important than an alive phone?

@dmnk i think calendar alerts, or messages qualify, but not when you plugin or unplug the phone, at a low battery level the screen could just stay in sleep mode, alternatively maybe switch to monochrome, lower resultion and dial back on brightness automatically for simple system alerts (those i have turned off by the way but they still show up when plugging in to charge USB)

plugged in to charge, and unplugged are important, in case you wanna charge your phone. so if the contact is bad, i'd like to know this, instead of wondering x hours later that the phone has discharged even more.

@dmnk there is already indication per LED light white, which shows it is charging - it wouldnt be necessary to power up the entire screen for a 3mm alert text.

In Jolla user guide go to lockscreen settings section:

Sometimes when connecting to a Windows computer, I get a warning that the device has not been recognized (because of bad contact), and in that case, the LED is on even if the phone is not charging.
